Introduction

Welcome to the Dragonfly Trading Company, a truly unique and inspirational self-help co-operative formed by a group of Zulu ladies, in Kwa-Zulu Natal. This small group of ladies, all unmarried mothers, typifies the true meaning of the entrepreneurial spirit, full of creativity, imagination & vision.

Their dream started by wishing to be entirely independent, ladies of their own destiny, to help not only themselves, but the many orphans in the area, who without their assistance would be unable to get a reasonable education.

The vision was to make a range of handcrafted paper products, whilst being totally committed to the concept of recycling. The first batch of handmade paper was uninspiring, as it just consisted of recycled waste paper. Undaunted they looked to their local vegetation, there was an unlimited supply of renewable foliage, the fibres from sugar cane, gum trees, banana leaves, plus the many grasses in the area. The results speak for themselves, each sheet of paper is unique, where no two can ever be the same. Seeking to still improve their paper they experimented by adding various dyes to the raw pulp, the effects are magical, the combination of the colours, the fibres and textures make for an exclusive tactile product.

The reality of their endeavours is there for all to share, not just in sheets of paper, there is now a full range of products, stationery sets, memo cubes, note books, gift packs and the ever popular range of cards.
